Laredo

7.00

Laredo is knit top down with raglan increases. Once the yoke is complete, the body and sleeves are divided and worked separately. The back opening is created by casting off stitches and casting on new ones using the backwards loop method. The hem and cuff of the body and sleeves are picked up after casting off and worked on the wrong side to create a decorative edge and hem in reverse stockinette on the right side. Designed to be a slightly cropped summer sweater, length may be added to the body if desired. If you choose to lengthen the garment, please purchase extra yarn.
